Marianne Faithfull began her singing career in 1964, landing her first gigs as a folk music performer in coffeehouses. She was discovered at a Rolling Stones' launch party by pop music producer Andrew Loog Oldham. Her first major release, "As Tears Go By", was penned by Oldham, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and became a chart success. She then released a series of successful singles, including "This Little Bird", "Summer Nights" and "Come and Stay With Me". Marianne Faithfull's involvement in Jagger's life would be reflected in some of The Rolling Stones' best-known songs. "Sympathy for the Devil", featured on the album Beggars Banquet (1968), was in part inspired by The Master and Margarita, by Mikhail Bulgakov, a book which Marianne Faithfull introduced him to. Two songs on 1971 album Sticky Fingers were also influenced by her: the chorus of "Wild Horses" ("wild horses couldn't drag me away") is said to be based on a phrase Marianne Faithfull uttered after coming out of a coma after an overdose, while Marianne Faithfull herself wrote "Sister Morphine".
Marianne Faithfull has been a prolific artist in the new century, releasing several albums that have received positive critical response. In 2000, she released Vagabond Ways and sang on Joe Jackson's Night and Day II album. Her renaissance continued with Kissin' Time, released in 2002. The album contains songs written with Beck, Billy Corgan, Jarvis Cocker, Dave Stewart, David Courts, and the French pop singer Etienne Daho. On this record, she paid tribute to Nico (with "Song for Nico"), whose work she admired. The album also included an autobiographical song she cowrote with Cocker, called "Sliding Through Life on Charm". In 2005, she released Before the Poison. The album was primarily a collaboration with PJ Harvey and Nick Cave, though Damon Albarn and Jon Brion also contributed. In 2005, Andre Schneider performed a cover version of her song "The Hawk". She has also performed a duet on Patrick Wolf's new album The Magic Position and made a Serge Gainsbourg cover with Sly & Robbie for a tribute album.
